Our newest StoryShout! workshop focuses on creating and developing scenes for a graphic novel. We introduce the format of graphic novels, which are similar to comic books and use art to tell a story, and show participants how to develop the tools they need to make their creations leap off the page.
We use three elements: drama, story-shaping, and comic strip illustration. In each of these, we work together in teams to hone practical skills and find creative sparks for our own stories. These workshops work best with pupils aged 8+.
